Description: Performance piece and interview of Kipper Kids relating to performance on October 18, 1979 at University Art Museum. Kipper Kids are painted in black makeup and wear nose and chin masks, with shower caps and jock straps. Pieces are humorous, playful and bizarre. One performance has one Kipper playing a guitar while both sing in an almost unintelligible "cockney" language. Another piece has Kippers making themselves into "cakes", with whipcream on their shower caps. Another piece shows Kippers exploding a mustard sandwich, much to the delight of the audience. Interview is conducted while Kippers are showering and removing stage makeup from one another, while explaining how the Kipper Kids characters were created. Very unusual and funny performance art.
